The Child in the Family Court Room: Whose Child is it Anyway?

Watch the live-stream of the lecture here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqJDlsl3mbc

What role do children play in the family trial? The case concerns their future: how is their voice heard? What happens if they hold the key to the issues before the court? Should they give evidence, hear evidence?

Should they meet the judge deciding their futures? How does the court reduce the risk that the trial experience itself harms the child it is seeking to protect?

In this lecture I will explore whether the family court system is fit for purpose when it comes to dealing with the children at the heart of its deliberations.
